Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Diamond Bomb Veil Review & Swatches

Cognac Candy Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, coppery-orange base with flecks of gold and copper sparkle throughout. It had sheer coverage, which could be built up to semi-sheer coverage at most, with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that felt like a cream-powder hybrid by touch in the pan but quickly turned to powder-like when it came into contact with my skin. The p...

Revlon Black Cherry & Sleek Mulberry Melting Glass Shine Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Black Cherry (012) Revlon Black Cherry (012) Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick ($9.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy finish with barely-there pearl.

How My Skin-Care Routine Has Become a Form of Self-Care During These Uncertain Times

We were one week into shelter-in-place in the Bay Area, and I felt like I was letting things really fall apart. I struggled to find the balance of being a parent and an employee (still do!), ate sad meals I quickly hacked together, and lived in my sweatpants. I still took my daily shower, but I'd say my efforts to take care of myself were at about 15 percent of normal. Then, that night, I washed my face. I followed that with toner, serum, and my night cream. It was the first time I had completed...
